As mentioned in the first point shown at login, to connect your WooCommerce site with Nembol, you need to enable the REST API in your WooCommerce admin interface:

In your WordPress admin interface (mystore.com/wp-admin): 

  • Go to WooCommerce 
  • Click on Settings
  • in the API tab, tick the box “Enable the REST API”. More recent WooCommerce versions have instead an “Enable the legacy REST API” command under Settings > Advanced
  • Don’t forget to save changes at the bottom.

In addition, you need to allow Post name in your WordPress Permalinks settings.

To do that:

WooCommerce settings setup

In Nembol you can find settings which are common to all channels, called Sync Settingsand the settings which are specific channel by channel.

Select WooCommerce if you wish to receive stock updates from it upon the sale. With this setup when you get an order in WooCommerce, this order will be communicated to Nembol: your quantity will be updated in Nembol, and in other connected channels.

Unselect it if you don’t wish to receive stock updates upon the sale from WooCommerce.

Product Status and categories can be easily reassigned later in WooCommerce.

  •  the Catalog visibility, according to your personal seller needs.

Here, you can choose the Product Category from which you wish to import your listings from WooCommerce into Nembol.

You can import your products from WooCommerce to Nembol with their full HTML descriptions. This is useful if:

  • You wish to have a better formatted descriptions in other channels such as Shopify or eBay
  • Nembol automatically extracts correctly formatted HTML bullets from descriptions to fill Amazon bullets

Once your products were imported without HTML, this cannot be undone, unless you delete all products from Nembol and import them again. This will break any inventory sync you may have set in the meantime.

Please note: Orders are visible in Nembol Orders Tab within minutes after they were received on a connected channel. When a channel is reconnected, or newly connected, Nembol retrieves orders received within the previous 24 hours. No order is retrieved more than once.
